Imagine what it must feel like to win the Spanish lottery. ‘The Unlucky Winner Is…’ is an episode of the popular BBC sitcom, Only Fools & Horses. The fourth episode of series 6 was first screened on 29 January 1989. In this episode Rodney wins a holiday to Majorca.
Del and Rodney Win the Spanish Lottery
Del and Rodney have just won a million Pesetas on the Spanish lottery. There’s jubilation all round until they realise there’s a rather large problem. Delboy and Rodney are in Spain because they won a competition. However, when Rodney entered the competition he gave a much younger age. The organisers believe him to be 14. The minimum age to take part in the Spanish Lottery is 18. In order to claim the lottery prize he would have to admit that he lied about his age. This puts the Trotters in a very uncomfortable situation.
